Thanks for your query,
This is a normal behavior in breast fed babies,sometimes there is increased gastrocolic reflex and babies pass frequent stools ,
Most important thing is to observe his activity,feeding ,amount of urine passed.and in case he appears lethargic.take him to pediatrician.

Wishing your baby good health
God bless
